With a near-even balance between sativa and indica (sativa/indica ratio of 45/55), Chemdawg, also known as Chemdog, delivers on both fronts. A clear cerebral high drives creativity while a stony, sleepy body high fights insomnia and relaxes the muscles. This strain has THC levels up to 19%, meaning it’s more potent than most. It has a powerful spicy, plant-like taste and smell with a hint of diesel; the aroma alone can alert snoopy neighbors to even a carefully concealed pot grow. Not surprisingly, Chemdawg is used to produce Sour Diesel, one of the world’s most popular strains. Little is known about Chemdawg’s history or genetics, though there are urban legends involving a Grateful Dead concert, a handful of seeds, and a grower named Chemdog. Best for anxiety and pain, this strain is also helpful with depression and ADHD, as well as migraines, arthritis, and PMS. Dry mouth and dry eyes are possible when using this strain, while other side effects are less likely. Chemdawg is most popular on the West Coast, in Nevada, and in Colorado. It’s possible to find on the black market but doesn’t come around very often.

The name says it all! Tight buds, steeped with resin, which release a scent when burned suggestive of hash, Bubba X Hash gives users a varied and extensive experience that is often used to help alleviate symptoms of medical conditions such as chronic pain, insomnia, stress, depression and lack of appetite. Perfect after a long day, this strain is also popular for its cerebral effects, helping to melt away built up stress and anxiety. The forest green to pale purple buds burns well and quickly, reducing the amount of effort and time needed to feel the desired effects. Bubba X Hash is an Indica strain that exhibits a distinctive, bulky bud structure with hues that range from forest green to pale purple. Bubba X Hash stays compact during her extra-short flowering time. Her tight, resin-drenched flower clusters develop a brittle surface when dried and give off a deep, rich aroma that’s undercut with a hint of hashish.
